Berries with Almond Cream and Amaretti

This dish makes a great brunch dessert.


  • 2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 ounces orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 12 amaretti cookies, unwrapped and lightly crushed


In a medium size bowl, add the berries and douse with the liqueur. Sprinkle the berries with 1 tablespoon sugar and let the berries macerate to get their juices flowing.

In a large bowl, add the cream, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and the almond extract. Beat the cream with a whisk or electric beater until it forms peaks.

Serve the berries in dessert dishes topped with whipped cream and crushed amaretti cookies.
